    Just a quick question. Will the 6mm Remington function through an ADL action designed for a 243, or is a long standard action required. I know the 6mm Rem is a little longer, and Remington has the VLS spec'd with the same action for both cartridges, but would a long action be more advantageous for the longer 6mm?

    It will work but a LA will give you a bit more room for the heavy bullets.
